ProcerinProcerin is a non-prescription hair loss supplement that is a blend of several vitamins, minerals, and herbs. The producer, Speedwinds Nutrition, Inc. claims that the product has an 88% success rate in treating androgenetic alopecia (male hair loss) and offers an unconditional 90 day money-back guarantee.
Androgenetic alopecia is caused by the naturally occurring enzyme 5 alpha-reductase transforming the male hormone testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Procerin has been formulated to inhibit the production of DHT with its 17 ingredients. Three of the herbs found in Procerin, saw palmetto, nettles, and gotu kula, have been shown in some studies to reduce levels of DHT. Because female hair loss is usually caused by conditions other than elevated levels of DHT, Procerin is generally not recommended for women.
The makers of Procerin suggest that men use the supplement consistently for at least one to two months before they should begin to see results. Other hair loss treatments such as the oral medication Propecia and Rogaine generally take up to six months to begin to show hair re-growth. It is considered safe to use Procerin in conjunction with both Propecia and Rogaine. Side effects associated with Procerin are uncommon but can include diarrhea, vomiting, and dizziness. As with any hair loss medication, if Procerin starts to cause any side effects at all you should consult with your medical professional.
Like almost all herbal supplements, there have been minimal studies conducted on the effectiveness of Procerin so you should keep an open mind as to the results you might expect.
